Re: the cheescloth, it is/was starched cheesecloth that is used in bookbinding - a total experiment. I inkstamped a fern onto some paper, used it as a template and sewed it over the base cloth that was covered with a piece of the cheesecloth. then tried to rip the paper off, similar to paperpiecing. But the the image was so small that I couldn't tear all the paper away. I kind of liked how that looked so left it!
